How can CEFR scales and test tasks be related to each other? (18.11.2021, 14:00 - 17:15 CET)
This workshop will provide participants with guidance on how to relate test tasks for receptive skills to the CEFR. After a brief introduction to the purpose, content and impact of the CEFR and its Companion Volume, we will analyse selected scales and descriptors from the Companion Volume in order to gain a better understanding of key characteristics of the levels, in particular the “plus” levels. This will be followed by a discussion of sample tasks with regard to their strengths, weaknesses and relation to specific CEFR levels. Finally, we will consider the item writing process, for example, how to increase or decrease the difficulty of test tasks and items.
